K-State Proud looks for donors in Justin Hall

K-State Proud sets up a display in Justin Hall.

K-State Proud, an organization that encourages students to help their fellow students, was in Hoffman Lounge Wednesday collecting donations and giving donors t-shirts.

“Creating a culture of philanthropy. That is what K-State Proud represents,” said Chris Kellenbarger, this year’s vice president for Student Campaigns for Student Foundation.

The group’s goal is $135,000. “Last year we raised more than $116,000 and enabled 70 students to stay in school, the business major said.

K-State Proud will be hosting an information table in the K-State Student Union Feb. 18 – 22.

Students are encouraged to wear their K-State Proud to the K-State Proud game on Feb. 25.

If you or someone you know is currently struggling to financially stay at the university, K-State Proud recommends submitting a nomination for a Student Opportunity Award. The awards committee meets weekly to process applications, which can be submitted at

“We want students to be involved in lifelong philanthropy,” Kellenbarger said.
